Man In Coronavirus Lockdown Sends His Pet Chihuahua To The Local Shop To Get Cheetos

One man made his dog travel to the shops to pick him up a packet of Cheetos and miraculously, it worked.

Most dogs I know are more self-aware than what people give them credit for, but I’m not sure any of them would be able to undertake this task.

Seriously, sending your dog to a shop to pick up a specific brand of crisps is bold. It’s something I wouldn’t even trust my mother to do; she’d come back with something own brand or her “favourite crisps from when she was my age”.

Regardless, the Coronavirus lockdown means that even if she got the order right, you couldn’t send your mum if you wanted to. People aren’t really allowed out, but dogs are.

With that, one man in Mexico, Antonio Muñoz, really fancied some Cheetos, and had just the dog to get them for him.

Obviously he couldn’t go out because of the lockdown, so he sent his chihuahua with $20 and a note to the shops.

The note read [in Spanish]:

Hello Mr. Shopkeeper. Please sell my dog some Cheetos, the orange kind, not the red ones, they’re too hot. She has $20 attached to her collar.

WARNING: She will bite if not treated right. Your front neighbour“.

Let’s be honest, this could have been horribly. The dog must have made this journey a good few times to know what to do.

Also, anyone could have taken the dog or the money and building on that, the shopkeeper could have given the wrong change. Didn’t this guy have anything smaller than a twenty?

It worked though; the little dog came back with a bag of Cheetos in her mouth and dare I say, a can do attitude.

It’s hard to say whether that’s rain water beneath her. If it is, I’ve got to say; not much is going right in the world at the moment, but it’s nice that there’s nicer weather in Surrey than in Mexico.

It’s gorgeous here.

Mexico has only recorded 387 cases of COVID-19, but has had a large shutdown across the country, with gyms, bars, theatres, cinemas, zoos, and sports stadiums all ordered close last week in Mexico City.

Deputy Health Minister Hugo Lopez-Gatell said of the pandemic:

We have decided to temporarily suspend events with 100 people or more. All gatherings – public, private, governmental, social – must be avoided throughout the month.

All we need is a dog that can do shopping and we’ll be fine.
